blaqueer: so, you know that saying “laughter heals the soul”…? well, i certainly wouldn’t go that far, but it did make for a good, even if “childish”, way to pass the time on Snapchat at work today. at the very least, it’s better than getting annoyed or frustrated, as per usual. see: original post bitmoji and Snapchat make for Tumblr-worthy reactionary screenshots, apparently.
( continued from this post ) went back to the petshop this morning after picking up a toy for the yet-to-be-named kitten because he didn’t have anything to play with in his cage and that’s just fucking depressing. also picked up some pet-friendly wet wipes to clean him up a bit. when i got there, i was able to take him out of his cage and noticed that they’d cleaned him up a bit since i was there yesterday. much appreciated. <3 stood there holding him for a good 5 minutes with him just chilling there in my arms, not trying to get away, crying out or anything. seriously the calmest 4mo kitten i’ve ever met. until i put him back in his cage with his new (catnip-filled) toy. even the staff stood there amazed at the instantaneous change in him. kittens will be be kittens, after all. just…
….something very, very bad indeed. i totally jumped the gun and put down a deposit on this little guy when the plan had been to wait until January to get a cat. GAH. anyway, now to blabber on about how that even happened. for my own future reference. tl;dr: i’m ridiculous and he’s coming home September 25th. 🙂

i will be (semi-)AFK from Tumblr Nov. 2nd (Wed) – Nov. 6th (Sun) JST as i’ll be visiting Tokyo and Shizuoka. while i’ll still be around ‘liking’ posts for future reference / reblogging, i won’t be posting or reblogging anything nor will i be responding to asks. if for whatever reason you need to contact me, email (queerascat at gmail dot com) or Tumblr’s messenger are your best bet. as always, i’ll still be active on Twitter, Instragram, Snapchat, and elsewhere, so if you want to check out what i’m up to or see random snaps of what i’m doing (such as the Instagram video above taken during my last trip to Tokyo), maybe follow me outside of Tumblr? either way, 行ってくる！ see you in a few days.
…..in which i Snapchat rant about how uncomfortable / exasperating it is as a black person reading books etc with black characters in it to my young Japanese students. Tumblr forced me to upload the video externally because of the file size, so i put it on the QAC YouTube channel unlisted, but i don’t care if anyone shares it elsewhere. also, i swear me posting random, annoying Snapchat rants on here or on YouTube isn’t going to become a thing. i just have to share this last one. ;(
…in which i mini-rant about one of my misogynistic adult students.
…meanwhile, i went to an Xジェンダーオフ会 / non-binary meetup in Tokyo and snapped parts of my day on Snapchat. thought it might be interesting to some.
